Sabzi – Punjabi street food

The best thing about Indian food is the community experience behind it, and what I love about family-owned Sabzi is that they make customers feel like they’re a guest in their home.

Their restaurant (a converted Blockbuster video store) was originally started as a pop-up during Covid, however, it proved so popular that the family decided to expand and add both indoor and outdoor seating. You’ll still find the old Blockbuster signage inside, a nostalgic nod to the building’s story.

One of the things that always keeps me going back for more is a new menu each week, prepared fresh by mother and son Paula and Ryan Singh and devised with the help of brother Stevie. Nobody is forgotten about when planning their home-cooked cuisine, and the menu always includes plenty of vegan options.

Keep an eye out for their Chole Bhature (flavoursome chickpea curry on fried bread). It’s my absolute favourite thing on their menu, and it tastes truly magical washed down with a mango or coconut lassi (which they’ve also made vegan).

At present, they don’t have a website or FB page, but menus are updated for the public on their Instagram account: @sabzi_2021
